Many individuals have tried a host of remedies in an attempt to soothe their digestive tracts, but some still have an issue with gastric distress1-4with resulting discomfort along the delicate lining of the esophagus. A novel solution is now available in the form of what scientists call raft-forming alginate. This blend of all-natural ingredients in Esophageal Guardian provides a totally unique approach to protecting esophageal tissue against harsh stomach acids.
The mechanism behind Esophageal Guardian involves the formation of a temporary physical barrieror raftbetween the stomach and the esophagus.5 The secret to this technology is what happens when alginic acid and potassium bicarbonate come into contact with gastric acids. Alginic acid forms a gel and potassium bicarbonate produces bubbles that get trapped in that gelproducing a floating foam layer that sits above the contents of the stomach.5
